After four years as a Unitarian Universalist, it was time for me to discern how I could fully contribute to my newly-chosen faith. As my leadership journey began, I had the great blessing to serve my congregation alongside our newly called minister, Rev. Jeanne Pupke.
I have learned that Jeanne has an incredibly keen eye for examining systems and matching people and their skills to the needs in those systems. As a leader, her ability to identify opportunities and develop solutions is remarkable, whether it’s in a congregation, RE program, cluster, region or affinity group.
Her business experience provides her with a strong sense of what’s possible, but it’s her faith and spirituality that ultimately help our hopes and dreams materialize into reality.
Her vision for our faith of a “commonwealth of congregations” with vital lay leaders and a sense of abundance is what our Association and our world need.
Now, after twelve years of collegiality with Jeanne, I can say, without hesitation, that she is a leader for our time and for the future of our Unitarian Universalist faith.
